EP Review: BALCONY – icarus

Although it’s only three songs, BALCONY‘s “icarus” EP makes my heart ache for a reason that I can’t quite place. It’s a labor of love by two amateur musicians, and it’s not perfect, but their passion is obvious in every dreamy indie-rock second of music. 224 more words

New Japanese Vibes (143) - FIVE NEW OLD 'Sunshine'

Sunshine’ by Kobe-born trio FIVE NEW OLD is the perfect musical antidote for the winter chills and flu-riddled season. The band first made their mark on the music scene with their likeable and fresh sound that kindles a new lease of life for 80s old-school urban vibes with an infectious alt-rock drive. 66 more words

ALBUM REVIEW: 'The Dangerous Summer' by The Dangerous Summer

It’s weird to see genuine excitement surrounding The Dangerous Summer. They’ve always come across as a rather lowkey, milquetoast little emo band, comfortable with slinking away into the background without really making too many waves all to themselves, but after a few years away fuelled by both creative differences and frontman AJ Perdomo’s decisions to focus on fatherhood, they’re back, now cut down to a trio and ready to go with a brand new album. 628 more words
